  • Description

    TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR ENDED SIX WEEKS OF FRUSTRATION TODAY (FRIDAY) WITH A TWO NIL WIN OVER CRYSTAL PALACE AT WHITE HART LANE. SPURS HADN'T WON SINCE NOVEMBER 15 ... BUT IT WAS ANOTHER FRUSTRATING DAY FOR JIMMY GREAVES. THEIR STAR FORWARD, WHO HASN'T SCORED SINCE NOVEMBER 8.

    SPURS DOMINATED THE MATCH THROUGHOUT. ONLY BAD SHOOTING PREVENTED THEM FROM GAINING A SIX-NIL LEAD AT HALF TIME. LED INTO ATTACK BY FORWARD GILZEAN, SPURS PEPPERED THE GOAL. GREAVES MISSED TWO EASY CHANCES BEFORE MULLERY PUT HIS SIDE AHEAD WITH A SCORCHING HALF VOLLEY SHOT WHICH LEFT THE PALACE GOALKEEPER NO CHANCE. THE GOAL CAME AFTER SIX MINUTES OF PLAY. GREAVES WAS OUT OF LUCK AGAIN WHEN AN OVER HEAD KICK CRASHED AGAINST THE BAR. HOWEVER, IN THE 37TH MINUTE, SPURS WENT TO A TWO GOAL LEAD WHEN GREAVES GAVE A THROUGH PASS TO PERRYMAN WHO RAN ON, TO SHOOT PAST PALACE GOALKEEPER JACKSON.

    MIDWAY THROUGH THE SECOND-HALF PALACE SUBSTITUTED PINKLEY FOR TOMKINS AND HAD A LITTLE MORE OF THE PLAY WITHOUT MAKING ANY REAL IMPRESSION.
